We like to listen music, all people like this, they listen music when are happy or sad, when they want don t feel alone, when just don t want to listen noise, when want to feel relax; If you are sad, what kind of music do you like to listen, and if you like to listen music...this make you to feel better or just make you feel more sad?

dear ice, as much as possible, i prefer not to listen to music and songs because it makes me feel much sadder. i prefer going out with friends who loves to laugh. they make you forget why you are sad. ann

When I am sad I only listen to upbeat happy songs. I can not listen to sad stuff if I am sad. I don't listen to a lot of sad stuff at all. Maybe I listen to some really hard or heavy music when I am sad to help get out the aggression.

Music does have a very powerful influence on our moods in my opinion. If I was really down I would actually try and stay away from sad music because I feel like it wouldn't help me much. I'd probably just end up dwelling on whatever it was that was bothering me. I would try and listen to upbeat songs, and I would turn the volume up real loud!

It depends on what I listen too. Music really does effect my moods. If I'm feeling down..I like to listen to upbeat stuff. I usually like upbeat stuff anyway. Sad songs often bring me down.

If I'm sad and listen to the music, I'm always hear the romantic songs or even the sad song, it makes me more sad. If I'm happy, all of song that heard makes me happy.

nice topic to start with. when i am sad i prefer listening to christian songs because with that i can feel the presence of God in my mind, heart and soul. i recognize how christian and worship songs helped me in so many times that i am almost feel down on the ground because of my problems in life. when i am happy i listen to love songs because i feel more happier when i heard my favorite love songs beat. classical and instrumental songs make me relax together i imagine that i am in bonding with nature. music really plays a major role in our lives. we may not noticed it but it does.

Depending on my mood I want to listen what kind of music. But sometimes certain kind of music has also affecting my feelings, like if I listen to ballad I remember something sad, or if I listen pop dance song I want to dancing like move my limbs, if I listen to emo like I want to cry haha.., and if I listen to rock music I can vent my anger, etc. :)

The right kind of music always cheers me up. There is certain stuff that reminds me of people I have lost that would only make me sadder if I listened to it when I am sad, but then there's other music that can make me feel happy, no matter what kind of mood I am in. Music is a wondeful thing.
